What is Maven Space? 

by | Feb 28, 2023 | Maven Space

If you’ve been hearing about Maven Space and wondering what it’s all about, here’s the down-low. Simply put, Maven Space is a female-forward, downtown Indianapolis social club, coworking and event space. But it’s so much more than that. It’s a community of badass (mostly) women who are lifting each other up, sharing their geniuses, crushing their life and personal goals, and embracing each others’ diversity and gifts.  

Intrigued? Here are the top five things you need to know:

1. First of all, what is a Maven? 

The dictionary defines a Maven as “an expert or connoisseur.” A Maven has a superpower, which means we’re ALL Mavens, because we’re all crazy-good at something. At Maven Space, we share our superpowers with each other. Our community is comprised of lawyers, data analysts, small business owners, social media gurus, techies, marketers, consultants, HR peeps…the list goes on and on, and we’re growing every day. So, if you’re stuck, there’s always someone who can help you get unstuck. If you just need a hug, a laugh or someone to have a glass of wine with, there’s someone to supply that too. And, there’s chocolate. Always chocolate.

 2. Is Maven Space for women only? 

Maven Space was designed with women (and female-identifying persons) in mind, but it’s a safe, inclusive, and welcoming space for anyone who is hard-working, respectful and kind, regardless of age, race, gender identity or sexual orientation. (In other words, no haters allowed.) The mission of Maven Space is to uplift women, nurture creativity, amplify the voices of all of its members, support their dreams and elevate the community as a whole.

 3. What’s the connection with Indy Maven

Maven Space was co-founded in 2022 by Leslie Bailey. Leslie, along with Amanda Kingsbury, founded Indy Maven in 2019 because they saw a void in the Indianapolis news market of content created by women, for women. In just three short years, that online community has grown to over 5,000 like-minded people who share ideas, make connections and recommendations, and are committed to supporting each other. While Indy Maven and Maven Space are two separate businesses, members of both communities enjoy discounts and perks for both.  

  1. Do I have to be a member of Maven Space to host an event there? 

You don’t! Our affordable, beautiful, bright and airy event spaces are available to rent for any occasion, whether it’s a conference, executive retreat, sales meeting, birthday party, baby or wedding shower, holiday party, client appreciation or networking event. However, Maven Space members get free event space hours with generous discounts on additional event space rentals, so, if you host meetings or events regularly, membership is the way to go. And, onsite parking eliminates the hassle of hosting events downtown.  

  1. How much does it cost to be a member of Maven Space? 

With all the perks and benefits, a Maven Space membership virtually pays for itself. And, you can #JoinTheMavenMovement for as little as $95 per month. (Go ahead and cancel that gym membership!)
